Pokerstars - Murdoch25

I may or may not add more info in the future.

I staked the player for about 8 months without any problems.

One day to the other he disappeared without any notice. 1 months later, I got an email by him stating he needed time off due to gambling/alcohol issues. Wheter the funds went to these issues or not is still unknown to me. We had a chat on Discord after his email and he played a few tourneys after, but has gone completely MIA again since (about 1 month now) and also has not played since. I did not worry about the funds at the time and still have hope it resolves eventually due to high reliability before that point, but this post is to warn potential backers if I am wrong and if he may seek staking somewhere else (which is not impossible obviously).

Amount owed, if so, is $891 (total MU), of which $485 were in accounts as of last update.

One more and probably last update about this - after some time Prokatana on Pokerstars alias Ionut Alexandru Catana from Borosov/Romania had kept contacting me promising to pay back after I wanted to end the stake.

First he told me he can't send me the money because he was on Vacation (despite playing the sunday storm anniversary and multiple sats to it, ensuring he had internet access) and he would send me the money when he returns.
A week after he sent me a fishy screenshot, him telling me that his account is blocked (and he doesn't know why that happened). At the top of the screen it even showed him being logged in. Since I pointed that out, I never heard from him again.

Definately by far the most delusional person I ever had to deal with, and wheter it's money related or something else, I would advise not to deal with him.

Do not stake ProKatana // Ionut Alexandru Catana from Brasov.

Since I still have seemingly close Facebook contacts of him screenshoted (although I cannot see the profiles on his profile anymore, because he removed me) I may take further measures in the future.

Basic gut-feeling I should have just went with - had a negative feedback on some romanian forum many years ago, but still fancied and still only had that had a bad gut feeling already - sometimes you shall actually got with your gut (especially in staking it seems). Shows, old-school-rule -> go with your gut!

Staked him for 300€ on Stars for O8 MTTs up to $11 /SNGs up to $5
Never updated properly, , played 10 games in 4 days despite saying he will do 500games/month.
Term is daily updates daily and the one day he played his numbers were also just made up)

Our last conversation:

PlzBeNice — heute um 00:30 Uhr
Mate sorry to ask this so early and I do not doubt you at all etc, but with new players I stake pls understand I am a little cautious
Would you mind sending me a screenshot of deposit of 300€ (on stars) and the roll on your stars account please?
Basically reason for me asking is for my own peace- you said 500Games/month and so far you played 10 games in 3 days, just for my own peace I'd appreciate that
If you had no time to play no worries at all, it's just obviously with new player I am obv. a little more catuious
[00:32]
Eg. if you could send ma one screenshot showing transaction history + roll (shown in lobby anyways) I will be very happy

PlzBeNice — heute um 02:09 Uhr
So you cannot show it to me or what is the problem? That you read the message can be seen

PlzBeNice — heute um 02:18 Uhr
I just mean if you ****ed up least you can do is be honest to me (this is at least my feeling) - you knew the terms and didnt report - first sign
500 games/month? you are so, so far from it
Then reading and ignoring my message, obv I cannot be anything else other than maybe paranoid
Next time your status changes (no matter if online or you go straight off, whatever) I will post it, jsut as notice, if there isnt an explaination (Bearbeitet)

PlzBeNice — heute um 02:27 Uhr
Tell me if I shall just post report, I have it all written already
[02:27]
I also know you read this already


Just a warning for now (I hope this clears up but I do not believe in it), DNS!!!!!

Also be cautious about if you stake anyone with Catana in surname ( I saw on FB there are loads, even in his city, so be aware)

Just goes to show staking people randomly over the internet (unless you are a stable, then you can afford the loss) outweights the gain). All you are left with is the disappointment in himanity, especially if the dude can't even come up with an excuse.

The player received a bankroll to do the pre-selection process of the team, profited about $200 dollars, chose not to join the team and did not want to share the profits generated with classes and shared money.
Dear Felipe

From where i can see we didnt reach an agreement, maybe its a just a misscomunication problem.
You guys made me a trial with 10usd so i could play 0.55 to 1.65 usd tournaments. In any momento we discussed about winnings or losses. More so, yo guys told me that the 10usd where a gift for being in the pre selection. Clearly you guys have terrible ethics when it comes to money and the way you work. I just felt disgusted when players of cardroom told me i would be ghosted every tournament when there where 25 people left. You should have told me that the winnings would be Split before we start a deal, but know, you waited for me to profit 200$ and then, you just went crazy.
You have my phone, you can contact me any time to settle this.
PS: You should be the one getting negative feedback for ghosting.

We have been working with Heitor Camargos since February, 2017.

Starting around a year ago Heitor Camargos started playing games outside his limits and expressed that he strongly disagreed with the limits we allowed him to play.

Over the last year, he started playing games that he wasn't allowed to play more and more often adding up to significant portions of his total buyins monthly. After many ignored warnings we finally asked him to return all funds so that we could have a serious discussion about what was going on. He was extremely unhappy that we did this during SCOOP.

We explained that we view intentionally registering games we don't want you to play as a form of stealing. Heitor Camargos's reply was essentially that this is fine as long as he makes money in those games (overall he hasn't made money in the misplayed games and he doesn't have the ability to repay us if he loses).

We explained that by consistently and intentionally breaching our agreement it made it very difficult to continue working with Heitor Camargos.

Heitor Camargos refused to commit to staying within his limits, saying he preferred to quit in makeup because we were wrong to ask for funds back in the middle of SCOOP.

Heitor Camargos is quitting in significant makeup.

Heitor Camargos owes us $11.8k

We started working with Lucas Leonardo Vera Lopez on June 28, 2021.

Everything went relatively smoothly - apart from some isolated incidents where he transferred money to other accounts without permission of anyone on the team - until Lucas Leonardo Vera Lopez faced his first downswing.

Over the last few months Lucas Leonardo Vera Lopez kept reducing his volume and communication until he disappeared completely and now no longer responds to messages.

During the last few months he also increasingly started playing games he wasn't supposed to.

We strongly discourage anyone from working with Lucas Leonardo Vera Lopez.

Hello ,

I find this thread unethical due to the lack of business morals of these staking stables

Let me explain to you this :

People who need a stake are desperate (and having some life issues vast majority of time) , some of them are doing okay , others are not .

Making money on desperate people and then putting out these stories of desperate people not paying what they own and putting their faces out is laughable . When it comes down to lending money to idiots for gambling .

Anyone reasonable European person would make 1599 bucks at a warehouse job and live at his grandmother and take it from there .

Not get himself to a bad deal with some staking group .

StandardBacking my personal wish is you guys get scammed more often !

If you lend money to someone for gambling and do some background checks , ensure it kind of make sense what he is about to do (which I'm sure most stakers do) - then still ending up getting their money stolen at a frequent ratio (so often that they need a thread to complain about it . What does this mean is their customer base is corrupted by default because lending money for gambling is by default silly / grey area . They give money to people who have issues and they know it and then they make this toxic thread to complain , post personal info etc. which I find a bit ridiculous .

Anyone would play with their own money if they could do so for very obvious reasons.

About once a year we have a player just take the bankroll and vanish, and I guess we got this out of the way early in 2019.

This human vanished shortly after receiving the starter bankroll, with the only message being that he was going to the following live event (first we heard of it)

Banco Casino Masters 100,000€ GTD
Public
· Hosted by Banco Casino Bratislava

Perhaps the artificially low starter bankroll of a couple hundred bucks went into that, or the pits, or booze/drugs, or who knows. We are posting this so that other backers avoid the similar situation with this human.

He has not replied to emails or skypes (he has not even read the skypes), and we do not expect that to change in the future.
He uses ID and Stars account of Beidaut Stefania

Beidaut came to our pool in January 2022. We noticed the name Marian Alexandru during passing reports, searched it here and found information about scam

In May 2022 I staked a player, “Arsen Lisak”, for a total of $2000, playing NL50 Zoom on PokerStars. I now believe it to be the same person as in this earlier post #4613:

https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/s...postcount=4614

-due to the identical name.

My stakee claimed to be from Czech Republic, as opposed to Romania. But I have some reason to doubt this since he appeared vague when I mentioned Prague, and one email he sent contained some Cyrillic characters.

Plays as Hlubocinka on PokerStars.

Email: arsenliscz@gmail.com
Skype: live:.cid.83d58e4a445ce70f

It’s now clear that the player provided manipulated HH files to overstate his losses, in order to justify topups.* Following massive losses after the second top up (in just a few days) I looked more closely at the HH files and saw a number of big losing pots had happened multiple times.

One example:



I do not know how much, if at all, he actually played. He rarely made himself available to speak on Skype except in the early hours of the morning when I was asleep, and was generally evasive following the first top-up. I finally ended the staking when he refused to share his screen, after many requests, so I could look at his PokerStars cashier history or otherwise investigate exactly what was going on.

* (I think he likely provided overstated win graphs/hand histories initially, to induce me to stake him, since I later discovered duplicate hands in the initial hand sample).

In December of 2020, Tommy chose to part ways, returned COH, and we set up a repayment plan for a minimum of $100/month until he got back on his feet. The total amount to be repaid was $10,167.

Tommy followed this plan for the first five monthly payments. He then cited health and financial troubles and asked to put off the payments for a couple of months, we agreed. We didn't hear from Tommy for four months, and during this time, he profited online.

Tommy then restarted payment in January, February, and March of 2022. On April 11th, 2022, he asked for a 30-day extension, which we granted. We have not heard back since April 11th after multiple attempts to contact him.

Tommy owes us $9,367.

After a few days without any communication (with us trying to contact him) Renato Vazquez informed us via email that his current situation was that he was facing a personal problem in the family.

After being repeatedly asked to send audits, Renato decided to tell us that he spent all the money that was in his account playing at the casino. After agreeing to make a payment plan, Renato did not fulfill the agreement and didnt answer me anymore.

i've run into something similar, also romanian, told me he needed a topup and sent hh that was mostly doubles, when removing doubles it went from losing 1.2k to losing 400 - he insists he lost 1.2k and it's a bad database, but obviously not topping up until we get clean hh and preparing to report him here and elsewhere if he doesn't produce the clean hh from stars directly showing it's indeed a bad database issue

Debt amount: 24292 Euros

TokenStars Group Limited and Tobias Schaaf signed a staking agreement on the 6th of March 2019.
As of 28.06.2022, Tobias Schaaf's makeup is 24292 euros.

As per the agreement, Tobias has to repay 75% of the makeup and pay any other amounts due to TokenStars (Clause 10.2.2) to terminate the agreement.
On May 8th, 2020 TokenStars sent Tobias 10,000 Euro to participate in poker tournaments. 6297 euros of 10,000 euros were frozen on Skrill and since then Tobias claims that they are still frozen (on Skrill, then on PokerStars, then on Bank). Though Tobias never showed any proof of this amount being blocked.

On the 27th of January Tobias and TokenStars agreed that Tobias have to repay 15,000 Euro to terminate the agreement. Even though the payment had to be transferred in 45 days Tobias never came back to it and ignored most of the notifications.
